S09.E01: Talk of the Town

Recommended Posts

Quote

It's fall in New York City and Luann addresses her unfolding wedding plans in the Season 9 premiere. Also: Dorinda complains about Sonja's bad mouthing; Bethenny works to sell an apartment; and Luann faces Ramona about her continuous meddling.

If the rest of the season is as boring as this first episode then this season will be a complete snoozefest! 

Ramona. How embarrassing, she was practically humping the interior decorator and she is still digging up shit on Tom. Give it a rest! Lu is a 50-something year old woman, if she's making a mistake then so be it! 

Carole looked like she had some work done. Everyone else looked good. But boring.

These women can't really seem to make up their mind about Luann/Tom because they keep swinging from they are trying to protect her because he's cheating on her BUT in the same breath they also like to throw how they are probably in an open relationship and they are just like each other. It all depends on whatever point they are trying to make, usually the cheating thing is to Luann's face and the "they are an open relationship" when they are out of ear shot. Either way, nobody has been able to sufficiently formulate to me why they care so much other than for storyline reasons and the general distaste they have for Luann.

I hope Ramona's face settles at some point during the season. Yowza.

I may never get over seeing that jar in Tom's apartment that was labeled "Tom's Cookies"

Loved Beth's red pants in the first scene.

Anyone else notice the way they 'displayed' Luann's texts with Tom onscreen? I don't think they've done that before, on any installment of the franchise. It was a little odd and maybe too slick but it cracked me up. However, I hope Luann isn't done texting via dictations to Siri. I wanted her to bellow "I love you too SMILEY FACE" in the middle of the park.

Not sure how ready I am for an election story line, but it's our reality so it should be in our reality shows too. I guess I'm glad that of all the cities, New York is getting the first crack at this. Carole's perspective is legit, and if nothing else it'll solidify for me who I'm still rooting for, and who voted for Trump.

Watching it now; hard to believe a woman of her age and worldliness is almost giddy about this pending wedding to a sleazebag! The Countless must be desperate; BIG TIME! ;-)

It may be legit, but given Bethany's reaction, she'd like for Carole to give it a rest too!  Apparently she drove her friends crazy with her 24/7 commentary, or so it seems.   However, the upcoming meltdown after the election might be worth the price of a ticket. ;)   Seriously,  I hope the show can veer away from that and LuAnn's marriage storyline.  That's gotten old too, IMO.

I had to come here and see the comments on Ramona's face. I cannot figure out what she did have done to it or better yet maybe what she didn't do but man oh man she looks different. The Picasso reference and all the other comments above were wonderful.

And I always find Carole very irritating to look at . If you look quickly and don't focus, she is attractive. If you actually look at her, man she is a bizarre looking one.

Jealous much? She's still kickin' it with Adam! How many thought he would still be around after all this time? I saw him last year on "Chopped!" ;-)

I think much of it is due to Luann's general obnoxiousness and Bethenny spearheading the Luann is a Ho campaign last year. Overall I understand exactly why Luann has infuriated Bethenny for so many years; first the countess routine lecturing on manners & how to get a man, then moving on to pontificating on true love and the jealousy of all women who are not her. But I think what is making ALL of them nuts is Luann's complete lack of authenticity. Her actions, her speech, her delivery - she doesn't look at all natural and I don't see anything that resembles a genuine person happy with their circumstances.

Beth would only go to the wedding if it was a paid appearance or they'd use her products???

I thought Lu said she only invited one HW?  (Forgot which one.)

Sonja's denim pantsuit -- lol.

Did Bethenny's dog Cookie pass away? ?  Overall I liked the episode, loved the house porn... nice to watch an episode where it's not about arguments nearly the entire hour... personally I like the slice of life scenes... lordt knows the drama is coming... loved that Carole is trying out the two kitt-ens ?

Ramona's face is unsettling. Maybe should have timed it better for the season. 

Bethenney is worse than ever. Not sure I can make it all season with her witch act.

The rest looks so boring.

That was a joke, I think. I mean, she probably did say that to Luann, but purposefully being a shithead. That's at least how I took it, and thought it was kinda funny.

No, Cookie is alive and wellish (she is very old) and Bethenny added 2 new pups to her home.

No, he won. It was by many measures the most boring Chopped I've ever seen.

I was both irritated that Carole let the couch upholstery get torn apart, but then relieved when I realized the swatches on the back were to reupholster the couch. I love the Scalamandre. It's gorgeous, but crazy stupid for a house with pets and ridiculously expensive. It's at least $30,000 to recover the couch with the silk tiger Scalamandre fabric.

Dorinda. That's why I was surprised to hear Sonja say she was invited, but couldn't go. I find it hard to believe Luann would invite her, of all people.

Bad joke as there were no takers for Bethenny's offers and she was never in danger of being invited.  Why don't these women just admit Luann is being real and had no desire to invite them as they have not one bit of interest in Luann's happiness.

Ramona's plastic surgery is beyond awful.  She looked so pretty before.  She's in full-on catwoman territory now.  She did not need that at all, and I hope it settles down or something.  It is very distracting.

It goes back to when LuAnn was at the height of her Countess - call me Mrs. de lesseps snobbery - who looked down at pre-Skinny Girl Bethenny.  At the time, Bethenny was living in a tiny apartment, working her sample trays at the market, who did not run with NY society.

In the infamous fall out with Jill, LuAnn automatically took Jill's side - and cast off Bethenny.

Did you see the episode? Cookie was there throughout most of the "Bethenny gets an offer on her apt" scene. 

Her new puppies are cute. That's the best thing I have to say about her. I was rolling my eyes all over again at her recorded "breakdown flashback scene" after seeing her old apt for the first time. Having an emotional reaction is fine; telling somebody to record you while having it is not.

Glad I'm not the only one who thought Ramona looked bizarre. At least she seems to have ditched the awful extensions. I felt bad for Mario 2.0.  She was so obnoxious! 

Lu looked good.

How about all the work Ramona has had done? It looks like she had a full face lift, eye work, cheek implants and her lips plumped! Then, who ever is doing her makeup for her THs must really hate her, she looks horrible! LOL

Omg, her eyes are extra crazy now after getting a way-too-tight facelift. She looks dreadful.

I think Luann has a pretty good surgeon, she looks good to me.

I think that Sonja would say that whether she was invited or not.  She knew well in advance what the wedding date was (as we all did), so she had ample opportunity to make plans to be in Phuket, or wherever the hell she said she would be.  A lot of people do that, when they know they won't be invited to a "major" event in their social circles - make plans to be out of town during the event, so they can save face.

Bethenny just raced past the Countless and she couldn't stand it! I wonder why she periodically tries to salvage things? I keep thinking it's so she can stay close to hear dirt and stir the $#!t about Bethenny and the other girls! Luann's just not a nice person; selfish, jealous, class conscious, FOS, and can't deal with any woman who threatens her domination of a room it seems! ;-)

Yes I did watch the episode, clearly I looked away when Cookie was shown, otherwise I wouldn't have asked. She wasn't shown with the puppies.

Adam may have cut his hair, but it still looks like it needs some serious shampooing action.  Plus, is it possible that a man could have a worse vocal fry than a Kardashian?  His talking was like nails on a chalkboard to me!!

She is definitely starting to venture into the Jocelyn Wildenstein territory.  I was shocked at her look.  Watching past seasons these last few weeks, she was so much prettier back then.

I was shocked when they were showing the ages of everyone's dogs and Lu's dog is 10!

I remember when they showed him as a pup coming into the household when she was still married to the Count,time really passes quickly!

Screw Carole and everything she stands for if she refuses to recognize the real enemy of the USA, Jason Hoppy.

Sonja's sex show rehearsal made me feel good about my life choices. And I don't know how many procedures Ramona had done because she's gone full blown Picasso where you can't stay focused on one point for any amount of time. 

I agree about Ramona. I thought she looked bad, especially in her THs. She has that angry Botox brow. In her scene with Dorinda, I really noticed the difference between the two. Dorina looked good and natural while Ramona verged on freakish. Her nose also looked weird to me and different. I noticed it and don't remember noticing it in the past.

So nice to have delusional Sonja back! She not only has an international following, but she also dated Prince Albert? Hmm. Also, I can't believe the clothes she offered Beth for Dress for Success. I wonder if they got thrown in the nearest dumpster; they were either out of fashion or inappropriate. I can just see someone going for a job interview in those black shorts - lol.

Good lord, it was painful to look at Ramona's face. I couldn't figure out exactly what she had done, but couldn't stop staring at it. Sadly, she probably paid a fortune to look like that.

i wish Beth and Ramona would shut the hell up about Luanne and concentrate on their own lives. Also, since the news these days is all Trump all day,  I don't care to hear anything about politics on this show too. These women bring all the crazy I can handle!

Well, I'm over in the corner of every scene playing with the dogs or the kittens.  All of them were so cute.

Note:  Adam was on Chopped last night and he won the episode.

Let Luanne be and stopped pretending that you somehow care.  It's all about storyline and 'getting' Lu. 

Sonja looked ridiculous when rehearsing the play.  She also looked ridiculous when showing her 'donations' with Beth.  

Ro looked just as ridiculous with the contractor, her new 'face', and her constant need to show she's dating.

Of course we have to continue to hear about Beth's divorce from hell. 

I get Carole's involvement with the election.  I don't mind hearing about it.  This 'is' what is going on now and what 'was' going on then. 

I didn't mind Doris this episode.  She seemed very reasonable.
